Seagull-proof rubbish bags are to be given to more households across Weymouth and Portland.

Two thousand homes will receive the extra strong bags after a successful trial in the Park District area of Weymouth. The bags are made out of a strong and reusable fabric, and have a lifespan of around five years.
